QATAR AIRWAYS ADDS PRIVILEGE CLUB FUNCTIONALITY TO ITS SMART PHONE APPLICATIONS

Enhanced five-star service offers even greater mobility for members

Passengers can now access full benefits of Privilege Club on the move

27 Apr 2014

DOHA, Qatar – Qatar Airways, the award-winning five-star airline, has added an extra benefit to its mobile application, with the addition of a dedicated Privilege Club function.

The new functionality, which comes on the back of the successful launch of the Qatar Airways mobile application last year, enables passenger’s lives to be connected to their full and detailed Privilege Club membership information, at the touch of a button.

This fully integrated application will now enable customers to check their benefits and activities, use the Qcalculator to calculate Qmiles that can be earned or required for redemption, claim any missing Qmiles, cancel any pending award bookings, while also receiving tailored offers to meet their individual needs.

This new line of service allows the Doha-based carrier to enhance its five-star passenger service with value added benefits, as passengers can already search for, book flights and check their flight status, while following any relevant travel alerts.

Qatar Airways Chief Executive Officer, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker said: “We continually look for ways to bring new and exciting services to our customers. Mobility is increasingly important in a world where people may have to change or adapt their travel plans at the last moment. Our mobile application not only allows passengers to have all their flight information in the palm of their hand, but now enables Privilege Club members access to a whole new level of five-star service.”

Passengers can download the application from their respective app stores or by visiting qatarairways.com/mobile and following the links to the iPhone, BlackBerry or Android smartphone app stores. Customers who have already downloaded the application will automatically receive an update with the added Privilege Club functionality.

Qatar Airways has seen rapid growth in just 17 years of operations, currently flying a modern fleet of 131 aircraft to 137 key business and leisure destinations across Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia Pacific and the Americas.

Over the next few months, the network will grow further with Larnaca, Cyprus (April 29), Al Hofuf, Saudi Arabia (May 15), Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen Airport, Turkey (May 22, 2014), Edinburgh, Scotland (May 28, 2014), Miami, USA (June 10, 2014), Haneda, Japan (June 18, 2014) and Dallas/Fort Worth, USA (July 1, 2014).
